General Discussion / Hurricane Irma

Sending prayers that Doug and Umpa were not in the Keys when the Hurricane hit!

Hello all! Life has been crazy busy and I rarely get on the forum lately,but I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I want to wish you all a Happy New Year! I became a Nonna (Grandma) on Dec 18th to a beautiful baby girl named Brynn Elisabeth! We are over the moon! Thank goodness for Skype as my son and daughter in law live in Utah and my husband and I live in Mass. We plan to go visit in mid January and I can't wait! My New Years resolution is to get on the forum more often as it really does help to keep me on track and I need to get back on track!

Sides and Snacks / Roasted Curried Cauliflower
« on: November 30, 2010, 01:30:24 PM »
I have not made this, but I thought it sounded interesting

Do any changes need to be made to make it more FTS friendly?

Roasted Curried Cauliflower

3 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
tsp curry powder
tsp salt
1 large head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cut into large florets

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir together oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry powder and salt. Add the cauliflower, tossing to coat thoroughly with spice mixture.

Arrange cauliflower in a single layer on prepared sheet. Roast until florets are browned on bottom and tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 35 minutes.


General Questions / Now brand xylitol
« on: October 18, 2010, 10:10:13 PM »
Should I throw away my Now brand xylitol?
I never realized that it was derived from corn instead of birchwood
Is it ok to use it up or is it hurting my (very slow) weight loss?

1 Small lemon
1oz Fine Cornmeal/Polenta
2 Eggs
1oz Unsweetened Desiccated Coconut
Cream together the margarine and xylitol  until light and fluffy.Add the zest of one small unwaxed lemon and squeeze in approximately 1-2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice.Add eggs, flour,cornmeal and coconut.Mix very well.
Pour Madeira cake batter into a small greased and floured tin.
Place into a hot oven at 180C cook for 35-40 minutes or until golden and spongy to the touch.
Do not open the oven door for at least 25-30 minutes or else the cake will sink.Leave the Madeira and coconut cake in the cake tin for 5-10 minutes before removing it and leaving the cake to cool.After the cake is cooked you can brush the top of the cake with fresh lemon juice and sprinkle with coconut if desired, you can even sprinkle on a little lemon zest for decoration.'
